From the Paper:

"Florence Nightingale was born in Florence, Italy on May 12, 1820, during her parents' extended honeymoon. Florence's father was a wealthy landowner, who was involved in social causes, such as the abolitionist movement. Florence's childhood was spent at Embley Park, a mansion in Hampshire, and her family's summer home at Lea Hurst. The Nightingales were extremely wealthy, and Florence was raised in luxury, and prepared for the role of wife. However, the Nightingales did not have a son, and Florence's father was indulgent and gave her an extensive education that was unavailable to many women of her time."
